Merger approved of two oil and gas trade groups in Oklahoma

Oklahoma’s two oil and gas trade groups have made it official—they’re merging.

Members of the Oklahoma Independent Petroleum Association voted this week to merge with the Oklahoma Oil and Gas Association. OKOGA had earlier given its approval to the deal.

The new single organization will represent the oil and gas supply chain in the state. It will represent not only oil and natural gas exploration companies but those firms that also transport and refine the product.

“The OIPA and OKOGA represent virtually all of the public and private oil and gas companies actively investing capital in Oklahoma today,” said OKOGA Chairman Wade Hutchings, senior vice president of exploration and production for Oklahoma City’s Devon Energy. “Alignment between the two associations is at an all-time high, with both groups pursuing very similar agendas on behalf of their members, some of whom are part of both associations. I welcome this merger and believe the two entities together will serve as one voice, advocating for a stronger and more diversified Oklahoma economy that’s proud of our energy history and future.”
